The VOLOOM Volumizing Iron will give your hair some Va-Va-VOOM


There is such a thing as a good hair day. They don’t happen often, but when they do you’re not going to be the only one that will notice. When you feel like you look good, your confidence soars; you carry yourself a bit taller, smile more, and have a dash of a twinkle in your eye. The bad part is that this magical day is few and far in between, which is why we use devices to get our hair to do what we want the other 364 days of the year.

Whether you want it straight or curly, there are options galore for you to choose from. For those that have thin hair though, the problem is getting some volume in your do. While you can tease the crap out of it, there will be hell to pay when you have to brush it out later. If you’d like the fluff without losing more hair than necessary, then the VOLOOM can help. This is a hair volumizing iron that was made to specifically plump up your mane.

At first glance it appears to be a flat iron, but upon closer inspection it has a tidy checkerboard of cubes on either side. These beveled platforms will scrunch your hair with each press as you go from the root down near the tip, though you’ll want to make sure it’s not your top layer of hair as it will look slightly crimped. This look will last for days without help from spray or mouse, but the downside is cost as it will set you back $129.99. If it helps, this does come with three clips and a comb for separating hair.
